A Complete Mash Up #carrotranch #flashfiction #loganandmorgan

‘What the…? Logan…’


‘You said you’d left me dinner.’

‘Yeah. Sausage and mash.’

‘Why poison me?’

‘I don’t… oh.’

‘Yes. Oh. What gives?’

‘I was making a you.’

‘A me?’

‘Yes a you? A papier-mache Morgan. See.’

‘That’s… amazing. For me?’

‘Yep. Thought you’d like it.’

‘I do. But the dinner…?’

‘You used the mix in the blue bowl?’

‘The mash and the sausages, yes.’

‘That bowl contained the remaining paper pulp. You’ve had sausage and pulp.’

‘But it doesn’t smell of pulp?’

‘I wanted an authentic you so I softened the paper in a can of Bud.’

About TanGental

My name is Geoff Le Pard. Once I was a lawyer; now I am a writer. I've published several books: a four book series following Harry Spittle as he grows from hapless student to hapless partner in a London law firm; four others in different genres; a book of poetry; four anthologies of short fiction; and a memoir of my mother. I have several more in the pipeline. I have been blogging regularly since 2014, on topic as diverse as: poetry based on famous poems; memories from my life; my garden; my dog; a whole variety of short fiction; my attempts at baking and food; travel and the consequent disasters; theatre, film and book reviews; and the occasional thought piece. Mostly it is whatever takes my fancy. I avoid politics, mostly, and religion, always. I don't mean to upset anyone but if I do, well, sorry and I suggest you go elsewhere. These are my thoughts and no one else is to blame. If you want to nab anything I post, please acknowledge where it came from.

    Oh, that would be a true version of what some people make of mashed potatoes — glue! A crazy interaction between these two, one making paper mache of the other! 😀
